First Gay President says Boy Scouts should be open to gays

Yesterday CBS News anchor Scott Pelley asked Obama if he thought the Boy Scouts should open their ranks to gays. Of course Obama agreed they should, saying “Gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everyone else does.”

So I guess, based on that logic, Obama must also believe that Muslims should allow gays to be members of their mosques, even having gay Imams. I’d love for someone to ask him that question. Of course you know he’d say that about Christianity.


According to Fox News, today religious groups are going to pressure the Boy Scouts to stand strong and maintain the ban on gays:

On Monday a group of 42 religious groups will publish a half-page ad in USA Today calling on the Scouts to resist political and economic pressures to lift the ban.

The group is taking out a major advertising buy tomorrow denouncing the Scouts’ decision to consider changing their longstanding policy prohibiting openly gay Scout leaders or Scouts.

“To the Boy Scouts of America: Show courage,” the advertisement read. “Stand firm for timeless values.”
